    'The Headless Woman' Director Lucrecia Martel To Return With 'Zama'

    We might start writing about long-absent directors more often. In the three months since we picked out five foreign-language filmmakers who've been M.I.A. for several years, three of them have resurfaced in a big way. Arnaud Desplechin ("A Christmas Tale") is shooting "Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indi...

As everyone on the planet knows, the film became the highest-grossing of all time and a worldwide phenomenon. So wher...

    Channing Tatum Says 'Magic Mike 2' Is A Road Movie, Could Make His Directorial Debut On Film

    Probably the most pleasant surprise of the year so far, both critically and commercially, has been "Magic Mike." We've made no secret of our love of Steven Soderbergh 'round these parts, but we hadn't connected 100% with anything that he'd made since "Che," and when it was first announced, we weren'...

    Kickstarter Statistics - Read This Before Launching Your Next Film Fundraising Campaign

    I'm not sure if it's widely-known that Kickstarter has a stats page right on its website. It's not something that they seem to want to broadcast, because, unless you're intently looking for the page on Kickstarter's site, you wouldn't immediately notice the single tiny, ...

    Watch: 'Erica Wexler Is Online'... But Erica Wexler Is Dead In Excellent New Short Film

    Having a short film stick with audiences is a tough row to hoe. For whatever reason they're judged much more harshly than features, and in that respect, they don't even get the benefit of having a super opinionated viewer spread their negative toxins (even the worst feature will warrant a one-star I...

    Finally - Movement On 'Y: The Last Man' Adaptation; So Who Should Play Agent 355? Kent King?

    A big screen adaptation of this popular graphic novel has been "in the works" since 2008 when I first wrote about it on my old blog, although little progress has been made since then, so it's anyone's guess whether it'll eventually happen.

    New Line Cinema Finally Getting Closer To Bringing 'Y The Last Man' To The Big Screen

    While it's been in development for almost a decade (it was being developed by David S. Goyer, before he embarked on Christopher Nolan's Batman saga), it looks like there's finally some traction gaining on a big-screen adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra's influential and unbelievably brill...
